So I think Aaron will relate...
I was playing company softball tonight and got intentionally walked. There was some baseball reason for it, though the next 2 guys after me played college ball (I didn't make the freshman high school ball team) so it was questionable at best.
The next at bat at the pitcher was haphazardly throwing the ball to ensure he didn't throw a strike. I fouled off ball 4, so he through the next one in the dirt. I hit it off the bounce. It was an illegal pitch so it should have been a walk but the umpire called me out because it hit the pitcher (fortunate accident).
Don't get me wrong, we were killing the other team and I was going to take a good swing, but i hadn't hit a ball that didn't touch the infield that night. I don't get to take a lot of time to play sports, due to my family, so to get non-quality at bats in an offense game sucks.
I've also played on much worse teams.... I've pitched for much worse teams and I never never never pitched completely around someone, unless it made baseball sense. It sucks that we come out to have fun and someone does that. Oddly enough our league only allows 3 home runs and only a guy who had never hit a home run hit one tonight.
end rant thanks for listening.
